I made this last night for dinner and it was so good! I don't know where I got this recipe but I've been making since college. I completely forgot about it until I was going through a (very unorganized) pile of recipes. Give it a try!
1 1/2 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts
2 tbsp olive oil
1 cup onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, finely minced
1 1/2 cup frozen corn kernels, thawed
1 can (15 1/2oz) white beans, undrained
3 (4 oz) cans chopped green chilis **don't worry these aren't spicy. If you want a spicier chili add a couple chopped Jalapenos in with the onions**
1 (8oz) pkg cream cheese
3 tbsp lime juice
2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp white pepper
salt to taste
Heat the oil in a large pan over medium heat and add the onion. Cut the chicken into bite size pieces and add to the pan, stirring frequently so the chicken cooks on all sides. Add garlic and cumin. Run the beans with their liquid through the blender. (This makes the chili thicker and people who don't like the beans won't notice them. However, if you like a looser chili and beans, just skip this step.) Add the blended beans, chilies, lime juice, salt, and white pepper. Simmer for 10 minutes. Cut the cream cheese into chunks and add it gradually to the pot, stirring until it’s melted and mixed in. Add the corn, heat through.
I serve this with sour cream, cheese, olives, onions, tortilla chips, or whatever else sounds good!
